December 13th, 2011 - 1:00 pm EDT
Join us for this sixty minute webinar to hear how students are increasingly providing the impetus for SRTS programs, and learn from examples of successful youth engagement among National Center mini-grant recipients.
When: Tuesday December 13, 2011 1-2 p.m. EDT
- Carol Paola, NBCT and Teacher of the Gifted, Long Beach School District, Mississippi
- Pam Barth, Project Manager, National Center for Safe Routes to School
First, Pam Barth will discuss mini-grant recipients and highlight common themes among their successful youth engagement efforts. She will also show short video clips of students talking about how their leadership in SRTS activities has affected them. Then, Carol Paola will discuss an in-depth example of a group of students whose concern about their community's childhood obesity rate ultimately led to a state SRTS grant of $350,000 to improve infrastructure at key intersections around their school.
This webinar is part of the Safe Routes to School Coaching Action Network Webinar Series, developed by America Walks and the National Center for Safe Routes to School.
